Good luck! ps your (hopefully) empty pocket will eventually close, hopefully from bottom up so that it can't fill up again. ...Read more

Rash: like hard small sweat bumps without pus on forehead, not sweating? Used antibiotics, corn starch, salicylic, bak soda. Burn/tingle sensation?

Forehead bumps: There are about as many causes of the bumps you describe as there are patients that have them! it's impossible to tell you what these are, whether they are or oil gland-caused or they are growths of some kind but you need to see a dermatologist. ...Read more
